Kelly strike knocks Spurs out

Palace progress to last eight

Martin Kelly’s rasping strike secured Crystal Palace a 1-0 FA Cup win over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.

The victory at Spurs, flying high in the Premier League, provides Palace with their first quarter-final appearance in the top cup competition for 21 years.

The visitors grabbed the lead on the stroke of the break, as Wilfried Zaha’s dancing feet allowed space for Kelly to overlap and fire a powerful drive past Michel Vorm.

Dele Alli had seen a header cleared off the line by Yohan Cabaye before striking both posts with a shot during a first half that Spurs largely bossed, up until Kelly’s fine strike.

The pressure continued from Spurs into the second period, with Harry Kane twice denied by good saves from Wayne Hennessey.

Palace, though, settled as the half progressed, having a goal disallowed late on when Connor Wickham poked in Yannick Bolasie’s cross but was flagged for offside.

Spurs threw all that they could at the visitors in the time that remained but Palace held on without too much in the way of drama to secure a rare victory over the Lilywhites.
